Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar's picture

The Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (hereafter IITGN) was founded in the year 2008. It is currently located in Chandkheda, which is about a 15-minute drive from both Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Ahmedabad is one of the oldest living cities in India, known both for a rich cultural past as well as state-of-the-art infrastructure, thriving industries, and many modern amenities. It is also the hub of prestigious academic and research institutes such as the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad and the National Institute of Design. Gujarat’s long standing mercantile and business tradition encourages excellence and entrepreneurship.
IITGN is in the process of building its permanent campus in Gandhinagar, the capital of Gujarat, a city that expresses the state’s vision of modernity. Despite operating from a temporary campus at the Vishwakarma Government Engineering College, Chandkheda, IITGN has excellent facilities in terms of classrooms, laboratory spaces, faculty offices, etc. IIT Gandhinagar currently offers a 4-year B. Tech. programme in Chemical, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering and an M. Tech. programme in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering and in Metallurgy Materials Science. In addition, the Institute offers the students the option to do a Minor in Computer Science or Management along with their B. Tech. degrees. It also offers Ph.D. progammes in several disciplines in Engineering (Chemical, Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Mechanical, and Metallurgy & Materials Science), Sciences (Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics) and Humanities & Social Sciences (Cognitive Science, English, Philosophy, Sociology and others). IITGN goes many steps beyond the call and definition of a technology Institute, it aims to create excellence in science, technology as well as the Humanities and Social Sciences and thereby create rounded and nuanced minds.
